LH Native Comments

Description

Make comments better for visitors by modifying the comment form.

This plugin adds some small hacks around core WordPress comment forms including:

  • Hide the url field (will be configurabel in future releases)
  • Makes all fields html5 compliant.
  • Make email, name and comment required fields on the front end via required attribute.
  • Make the comment textarea expandable for better use of space.
  • Hide the email and name fields until a visitor begins adding a comment.
  • Saves unfinished comments in localstorage for repeat visitors.
  • If the commenter doesn’t exists saves their details in the database with an unclaimed user role
  • Give each comment its own permalink
